The New England Patriots are likely to be without wide receiver Mohamed Sanu in Week 12. He is listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but there is some thought that he could miss multiple weeks.

The Patriots are dealing with a particularly banged up receiver corps, with Phillip Dorsett and Julian Edelman both listed as questionable. Dorsett is dealing with a concussion, but appears to be making progress through the protocol. He was a DNP on Wednesday, and then limited on Thursday and Friday. Edelman is dealing with a new shoulder injury that left him limited all three days of practice.

Fantasy football analysis: Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu

Given the earlier report this week and Sanu only getting in one practice, odds seem decent that he will not play on Sunday. If he sits out, N’Keal Harry will see a boost in playing time. If Dorsett also sits, it means even more of an opportunity for Harry, with Jakobi Meyers getting work as well. Neither Harry or Meyers is someone to start in fantasy this week, but keep an eye on them given the injury report.
